    Financial Instrument Global Identifier - Bloomberg L.P. (Open Symbology)

    The only global, unique, non-changing, truly open source financial instrument identifier. Adopted as a global standard by the Object Management Group. OMG owns the copyright to FIGI and Bloomberg is the official Registration Authority and Certified Provider of the standard. FIGI and its associated metadata is offered to the industry as a public good, under the MIT Open Source license, with no fees (including no cost recovery) or restrictions on use, in perpetuity. FIGI is designed with the latest data science concepts, validated by Doctorates in Ontology and structured for the current and future needs of the financial industry.

    Proprietary, nonstandard and prolific symbology now stands as one of the most significant barriers to increased efficiency and innovation in an industry that sorely needs it.

    FIGI gives any firm, individual, or regulator a powerful tool in managing their data for financial instruments; from seamlessly translating between multiple proprietary and disparate identifiers, to providing a metadata driven identification methodology most suited for today's complex data management, quality and governance needs.

    Finally, all of this is done as a public good to the industry. As such, the standard removes one of the major impediments to global transparency; the ability to freely and uniquely identify any financial instrument in the same way, regardless of firm, jurisdiction, vendor, data source or pricing source.

    Thomson Reuters Valuation Navigator - Thomson Reuters

    Thomson Reuters Valuation Navigator makes market and position data more transparent for valuation and risk processes by reducing errors and enhancing insight for the entire enterprise. Using high performance search technology and pre-built modules, middle- and back-office teams can rapidly iterate and customize their analyses and workflows. By consolidating and reformatting data from multiple vendors, users can integrate these various feeds directly into a single internal system. Enhanced insight can be gained through the comparison of data from varying sources side by side and access to market-observable inputs and source data that shows the pricing recipe and supports evaluated pricing.

    Unlike traditional spreadsheet-based solutions, which are time-consuming to set up and costly to manually maintain, Valuation Navigator allows for fast and easy search across large data sets. The solution automates manual data wrangling activities and provides rigorous version control for audit processes – leaving more time for analysis, insight, and risk mitigation.

    For example, the process of calculating daily net asset value (NAV) across a diverse portfolio quickly and error-free, whilst also retaining the historic valuation information needed for audit and compliance purposes, is quite complex. However, Thomson Reuters Valuation Navigator includes customized modules that integrate feeds to simplify this task.
